Our vision is to make the world a more cybersecure place. We do this by giving organizations the tools to identify, measure and remedy human risk.

Why human risk factor

Cybersecurity can’t be addressed by technology alone. Hackers target people and that’s the cause for 85% of all successful security breaches

Our approach to behavior change

Changing human behavior is hard. We empower people with short, positive and fun security messages that are in line with our ethos of no blame — no shame.

Our unique approach is crafted by cybersecurity, behavioral and storytelling experts — it’s effective, efficient and employees love it

Sustainable security

Cybersecurity culture isn’t built in one day. Building culture and managing human risk means creating a virtuous cycle of identifying vulnerabilities, measuring human cybersecurity resilience and delivering meaningful, fine-targeted training

Meet the experts

Our approach took years — and the right people — to perfect. Cybersecurity experts, behavioral experts and filmmakers work together to create high-quality content that empowers and engages users
